My Cards and Tags: Time Machine Tag using Dina Wakley's Collaged Girls Stamp Set

 This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog theme is steampunk.  I included a steampunk-inspired quote for my tag that uses Dina Wakley's new Collaged Girls stamp set.

This one was kind of a blur.  I started with Strathmore Mixed Media black paper this time, painted it white, then added some circles and colors and shapes with Jane Davenport's Mermaid Markers and Prima's Water Soluble Oil Pastels.  After that, I stamped on this girl image (from Dina Wakley's Collaged Girls stamp set), then did some painting with acrylics and some outlining with a Sharpie.  I doodled a scallop border at the base and filled it in with Tim Holtz Fabric Tape.  I added some Label Tape, too, and finished this off with a sentiment I typed on a typewriter.

My Cards and Tags: Frankie Party Time Tag using My Favorite Things' Trendy Tag and Tim Holtz's Ghoulish Die

"Frame It" is this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme, so frame it I did!  I made this Frankie tag and positioned him so he looks like he's carrying his own frame to the party.


I was feeling the yen to do some gelli printing, so I got out my gel plate, some paint, and my Dina Wakley Spaced Dots stencil.  This is how my printings turned out:

I took a small section and cut a tag shape out of it using my Sizzix Big Shot and My Favorite Things' Trendy Tag die (it comes with a tag and with the scalloped frame).  I glued down some Tim Holtz Typeset Collage paper just to get the background going...somewhere.

From here, it was just a matter of cutting out a Frankie using black paper and Tim Holtz's Ghoulish die.  I painted the frame green and teal, added black paint around the edges, gave Frankie a party hat and this tag was looking done.  To finish it off, I splattered a bit of Dina Wakley's Ocean Gloss Spray onto the tag and added a "Party Time" sign from the Dylusions Back Chat sticker set.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
